Read: The Rangers Love The Community

In the time shortly after Hurricane Sandy, Brad Richards organized a hockey clinic on Staten Island that raised $14,000 and saw his teammates Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman, Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, Jeff Halpern, Taylor Pyatt, Steve Eminger, Carl Hagelin and Brian Boyle help out.

When asked about why the players decided to get involved with the recovery for Hurricane Sandy, Brad Richards said, Captain Ryan Callahan told SILive, “For us to come here and put some smiles on some people’s faces and raise some money, we’re happy to do it and glad we can.”

Richards added that this was a very easy thing to get involved, “We’re a tight-knit group. We live in a community and play in front of great fans and live in a great city, so it’s not too hard to make that decision to come out and do something like this.”
